As 2007 Approaches

I have a little catch-up to do. I have been sick since last Friday, and have been sleeping a lot to get better. I started getting sick, with sore throat, stuffiness, etc., and bought some Zicam Cold Remedy. At first, I thought it had worked, because the sore throat went away by Saturday evening, and I was feeling a little better. Then Sunday, Christmas Eve, Roger and I had a lot of running around to do, and it was cold and raining, so I think that just shot what little immune system I had left. I was pretty miserable Monday. Roger and I came home early, and I went to bed at 6pm. I slept until 10:30, undrugged, then I got up to eat a little something and took some Nyquil. I then slept until 2:30pm Tuesday afternoon. I have never slept that long in my life, but I guess I needed it. Since then, I've just felt run down, and running little low grade fevers. I've been drinking a lot of fluids, and sleeping. So, I haven't felt much like posting.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas, and Merry belated Christmas. Roger and I made out like spoiled bandits! hehehe... Our Christmas started Saturday. We got together as a gaming group and shared our gifts. I got a Mrs. Claus Pez dispenser from Debbie, a beautiful silver heart and amethyst necklace from my aunt Paula, lavender incense and burner from Annette, a really cute Tigger picture frame/ornament from Miranda and Marcus (that she hand painted our last name onto), a night shirt that says "Off Duty" with little gemstones from my mom and dad, and Brian decided to play White Santa, or Dirty Santa, or whatever you call it with his gifts. It was fun, and I ended up with a Gorgeous purple fairy throw that is made of the softest stuff I've ever laid my hands on. When I ended up with it, it was only because it had been taken 3 times already, and he had put the rule of 3 strikes, it's done. He also said that when he bought it, he told his wife that I would get it, and that he specifically had me in mind when he bought it. ::big grins::

Sunday, we started off at my mother's family. We didn't stay long, because we had three other houses to visit. My mom's brothers and sisters were all there. Ray and Tina, and their 9 children. Lori and her boyfriend, and her 4 kids. Dale and Kim, and their twins. etc, etc, lots and lots of family. We got a bag full of edible goodies from Ray and Tina, some money from her mother, an adorable Tigger hot cocoa set from Lori-which Roger bought me one already, so I'm going to exchange, and I got a Bath and Body works gift card from Dale and Kim (will go into detail what was bought with this later).

Then we made it to his sister, Darla's, house. We dropped off gifts, and visited for a few minutes.

Off we went again, to his grandparent's house. Most of his family was there, all except one uncle. We got a carpet shampooer, a spice rack, and some cookie sheets from his grandparents. I got a cute pair of purple gloves, a really soft red snowflake throw, a really good smelling candle, some potholders, dish towels, some black shoes, and some other miscellaneous stuff.

From there we went to my grandmother's house. I got a watch set and jewelry box, a blender, christmas socks, little KY massage oils, a coupon book, a Target gift card, and a really good thermos from my parents. I got a travel, roll up light purple throw and a beautiful purple, candle holder from my aunt, a really sweet popcorn popper (looks kind-of like this, but red, and no see through windows) from Miranda and Marcus, money from Oma (I'll go into detail what I spent this on), and Bite and the first PostSecret book from Roger.

I also got another package from Stacey, and she got me Pumpkin Pie Paradise 3-in-1 and lotion. Smells oh so yummy. "Whipped Cream Optional" hehehe.

Wednesday and Thursday, Roger and I went shopping with Christmas monies. Wednesday we went to Sam's Club, and I bought a rechargeable battery set and a huge tin of butter cookies. Then we went to Hobby Lobby and bought some discounted wrapping paper, I just love their wrapping paper! It has little cutting grids on the inside, and it's real thick-harder to tear. From there, we went to Target. We both had gift cards to spend. I bought Sims 2 Pets, and had about $18 left over. Our last stop was WalMart, of course. I bought some Christmas decorations, two candles, two CD wallets for my music, and an ornament box.

Thursday, Roger took me to B&BW. It was a madhouse in there! I got four body washes and their respective lotions and one bar of soap. $85 worth of stuff for $37, minus the gift card, I paid $22.00!! ::jumps up and down excitedly:: I got Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Sun-Ripened Raspberry, Creamy Coconut, and Plumeria. The soap is Lavender & Acacia, and it smells soooooo good. I have it on my desk, just so I can sniff it. hehehe. Then we came home and I wanted to check out the website to see if there were any gift sets on sale for cheaper. I ended up buying a perfume set, a pedicure set, and sleep socks. Roger and I may stop in again before the new year because I was eyeballing Crazy Caramel Corn. It smells so yummy, but it was a little too much for me just then. I'm hoping the sale will drop in the next couple of days.

Those places got most of my Christmas money, but I have a little left. I'm thinking of what to get next. ::big grins::

Bath & Bodyworks is quite possibly the devil. I got some of the hot chocolate stuff and the spicy gingerbread. Now, every time I put it on, I'm hungry.

Yea, I thought of you when I sniffed that Wickedly Hot Chocolate. I thought you would like that. :o)

Looks like I missed my caramel corn window. I'm going to check one more store today, but two stores were completely out and ebay is waaaay too expensive. The Pecan Pie Passion smelled pretty good too. I had 3-in-1 and lotion in hand yesterday and didn't buy it. Why? Because I had a blonde moment, and because I was feeling really really bad and not thinking clearly. It was the last two bottles of that as well, so...::shrugs:: C'est la vie!
